Latin LyricsEnglish Lyrics
 -
 O Fortune,
 -
 like the moon
 -
 you are changeable,
 -
 -
 -
 always waxing or waning;
 -
 detestable life
 -
 now difficult
 -
 -
 and then easy
 -
 -
 deceive a sharp mind,
 poverty
 power
 -
 -
 it melts them like ice.
 Fate
 -
Latin LyricsEnglish Lyrics
 -
 monstrous and empty,
 -
 -
 you whirling wheel,
 -
 stand malevolent
 -
 -
 -
 vain health always dissolves,
 shadowed
 -
 and veiled
 -
 -
 you plague me too;
 -
 -
 now through trickery
 -
 -
 -
 -
 my bare back I bring to your villainy.
 Fate
 -
Latin LyricsEnglish Lyrics
 -
 in health and virtue
 -
 -
 is now against me
 -
 -
 -
 -
 -
 affection and defeat always enslaved.
 -
 -
 -
 -
 -
 -
 -
 So at this hour without delay pluck the vibrating string;
 -
 -
 -
 -
 since Fate strikes down the strong,
 -
 -
 everyone weep with me!
